Good Press is a bookshop and gallery based in Glasgow, Scotland. We stock hundreds of self and independently published zines, books and other printed goods from around the world and host monthly exhibits of artist projects.
Using a UK brand of various small “everyday” objects called BASIC NEEDS as both the starting point and raw material for the work, Jessica Williams will create an installation of poetry in the window of Good Press.
What do people really need?
Who are the people who decide what other people need?
What happens to objects that were once functional but are now mass produced at a very low quality?
Can uselessness be poetic?
Can aesthetic objects be functional?
